Flipping homes in Las Vegas is not as common as it used to be, but it’s still a lucrative business.
The Las Vegas Valley is the second best place in the country to “flip” a home, in which buyers quickly sell their newly acquired houses for a profit, according to a new report from RealtyTrac.
The research firm, based in Irvine, Calif., defined a flip as buying a home and then selling it up to six months later.
There were 4,341 such sales of single-family homes in the valley last year, down 21 percent from 2011. The average purchase price was $133,198 and the average sales price was $203,945, giving the flippers a 53 percent gross profit — $70,746.
The profit percentage was second highest in the country. Orlando, Fla., was first at 63 percent, according to RealtyTrac.

Keller Williams Realty The Market Place EGGstravaganzaWhen: Friday, M
"Didn't know if it would be the right time to sell and downsize as we had been thinking of. We walked into Rick Brenkus Realty after having heard about the exceptional service and experience from a popular talk radio show.
With absolutely no pressure at all, Rick presented us with the answers we were seeking and within about ten days from our initial meeting, we had an offer to purchase our home at the price we knew was within the market range at the time.
The entire Brenkus team was and still is phenomenal since they not only represented us in the sale of our home but are currently doing the same in the purchase of our new downsized home as well. Rick, Lesa, Oshgene, Alex, Leslie and all the great support staff have been awe inspiring.
Definitely and highly recommend this great team. If you want it sold and have high expectations, this is the team to have in your corner."
